Haven Brothers: Legacy of the American Diner Movie

If you live in Providence, there are certain landmarks you learn about almost immediately. The Superman Building located in the heart of Kennedy Plaza, the statue of Roger Williams overlooking the city from College Hill, and of course, Haven Brothers situated each day next to City Hall.

When the Rhode Island Council for the Humanities (RICH) announced their Grant Awards for 2011; a $5,000 grant was awarded to Southeastern Massachusetts Arts Collaborative (SMARTS) to support the script development phase of a documentary film, being directed by (former venerable Green Party political candidate) Jeff Toste, on the oldest operating American diner on wheels, downtown Providence’s Haven Brothers Diner.
